  1. Fearless motorcycle riders
    This video shows a group of motorcycles riding on a narrow path next to a mountain cliff. However, it was not clear when or where the video was filmed. The video has garnered millions of views on social media.

  2. This is not Hollywood!
    An SUV got buried in pebbles after it recklessly cut lanes and caused a truck to flip over on it.
    The truck almost hit a tanker that was parked inches ahead of the incident.
    The truck driver managed to climb out of the cabin by himself.

  3. Vegetable safety net!
    In Hebei Province, a restaurant fire caused dozens of people to jump from a third-floor window. Fortunately, a truck loaded with vegetables happened to pass by. People used it as a temporary cushion for landing.

  4. What a disgusting man!
    A man entered the Nanjing subway station, walking a bit strangely.
    He then stumbled over to a quiet corner and took out a tissue.
    He stepped back out into the open and started shaking a leg.
    And then…that happened.
    Eventually, a cleaning lady arrived and swept up the mess.
